Biden frustrated with aides for walking back his statements, worries he looks weak:

President Joe Biden is reportedly frustrated with his staff in the White House and their efforts to “rush to explain” something the president has said. 

“The so-called clean-up campaign, he has told advisers, undermines him and smothers the authenticity that fueled his rise. Worse, it feeds a Republican talking point that he’s not fully in command,” NBC News reported Tuesday.

The White House has walked back several of the president’s statements, including when Biden said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.” 

 

The president was angry that his comments were being interpreted as unpredictable, according to the NBC report. White House spokesperson Andrew Bates pushed back on the NBC report.  

“The breathlessness of paragraphs 1 & 2 versus the denial being relegated to graph 28 tells you what you need to know about this story. And as we’ve said before, no clarifications of the President’s remarks are ever issued without his direct approval,” he said in a statement.
